Random Annoyances: Toyota Prius

God I hate this piece-o-shit car driven by smirking self-righteous eco-mentalists who seem to think that they’re doing us all a favour by buying something supposedly environmentally friendly. Now I’m all for saving the polar bear and shooting anyone who thinks deforestation is a good thing but this hideous excuse for an automobile will do neither. The raw materials to make the batteries are shipped halfway round the world to Japan before assembly and then shipped all the way back again to the Western markets where gullible fools line up under the deluded assumption that buying one will reduce their carbon footprint. Leaving aside the astronomical volume of CO2 released just to make the wretched thing, where exactly do you think the electricity to power the damn batteries is coming from?
